Movie Review: Pledge (2018)

There are frat boy hijinks at a creepy off camera frat house. No fellowship in this manse because this isn't a frat. There is bad acting and a 'twist' and an interesting ending. This was mediocre,

Best Line:

“Kings of the campus!”

“Not to see them as people at all.”

“We have 3 freshmen locked in a bathroom upstairs.”

Glenisk Quark mixed berry – mmm.

Orange crisp bar – reminds me of Britz bars.

My ex caused difficult and painful circumstances. My ex's appalling actions had traumatic consequences. I'm embittered by the terrible excuse for a person my ex turned out to be. My ex blithely abdicated any responsbility. My ex has a notable lack of contrition. I'm forsaken.

I saw Kylie's wine.

I want a gold owl brooch, Cartier aquamarine & diamond earrings and pendant earrings by Margherita Burgeher.

On 'Hollyoaks': One struggles to engage. JP's in jail, yet again. He's banged up for killing George due to him making a false confession. Sally bemoans. Ste and JP are intolerable. JP acts like anyone having a negative opinion on George is a crime. JP is anxiously twitching. George's murder has been world crushing for JP. Watching this soap is never a good idea. Ever. Mercedes does gutter behaviour. Cher smashes up a crub. Why is Mercedes the village sexpot? Sally is the arbiter of everybody's moral beahaviour. This isn't delicately calibrated. Ste acts portentously. JP exacerbates problems.

Extant 1x08&1x09 + NCIS 6x13 Rewatch Reviewed


This show is highly frustrating and profoundly wank. This is crap on a cosmic level like vegan cheese. There is further uncertainty. There is no end or guidance. The dire situation and fundamental existential challenge goes on. The grim drip drip of inexorable decline goes on. John screams at Julie. John carries on ignoring concerns about creepy Ethan.

There is talk of Korea. Various bad experiences befall Molly and others. This was dim-witted. TPTB need to be careful what they ask viewers to endure. This does not provoke searching questions. All this is happening because some rich man doesn't want to die?!?

Molly and others have retreated into persecution complexes. The more TPTB try, the more they seem to fail. This ep is the latest iteration in a grim cycle. Nothing of import happens. There is dull, grim reality and unique misfortune. The monied elite caused all this. There are serious credibility questions.

Best Lines:

“Windows on seclude.”

“It made me flush my mother into space, it ain't the baby Jesus!”

“They can't all be in on it!”

“Only friend I have on this planet.”

Care And Feeding

John does something stupid. Odin has an agenda. We get more flashbacks to John being an ass. Kern does stuff. Yawn.

Broken Bird

This was a rushed tale of Ducky being accused and walking off being stabbed at his age. Yawn.
